Joe: I think you’re right on spot with this one. With a color tablet and the ability to run multiple apps allowing the viewing of all formats and under $400, they would hit another home run. Like your blog.

Oh, if only!!!


I think they need an LCD screen for graphic novels and comics. That's one market the Kindle has been unable to promote with the e-ink only screen. I would LOVE to be able to read The Walking Dead and The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen on a Kindle!

This speculation misses the point. Amazon will do what is 100% best for Amazon. While everything mentioned feels warm & cozy, what is BEST for Amazon; Apple will have the best reader / tablet, but without the books; i.e. Eisler deals.

Amazon is the elephant, it doesn't need to be first or best with anything, just the most profit oriented. Their retail engine causes extended sales, not the hardware. Sure color is on the way, but please a hybrid and both file formats? How is this best for Amazon; the company that pioneered closed environment?

book reviews

I really hope you are right that an entry level Kindle will start at around $100. I have yet to buy one myself and I have to say that I am honestly torn between buying one and not. I really love the print version of books because I love making the crease in them and I love being able to look at bookshelf and see all the books that I have read. The only problem with print books is that most bookstores never have what I am looking for and they are more expensive then eBooks are.
